Silhouetted Thinking of You Cards

I think the CZ Design's Silhouette Sentiments set is so pretty.  The stamp/die set is part of the Simon Says Stamp Make Magic release!  I have made two cards, both the same except for the background color, but I liked the first one so much, I couldn't resist a second...
I used a mask from the Simon A2 Masks stencils set...I LOVE these stencils!  The stencils have markings on them to show you exactly where to place your paper underneath the stencil for perfect centering, when you ink...ingenious!!  That makes it SO easy to mask perfectly!  I used three colors of ink and then stamped the silhouette over the masked inks.  I stamped the silhouette in my MISTI, and did have to stamp a second time to get a deep black, so I would recommend stamping with the MISTI for multiple stamping if necessary, and stamp the first couple times with scrap paper, to make sure the stamp has got ink on the whole stamp.   I added the sentiment from the set(love these sentiments!), and done!  Here's a close up...
The second one, like the first, but done with a solo blue distress oxide...
I just used one blue ink, and made the base a tiny bit lighter than the top, where I was heavier with the ink.  Here's a close up...
I'm not an expert when it comes to blending inks, but with the Simon brushes and the marked stencil...fool proof!!  I'm thankful for tools that help people like me, make cardmaking easier and fun!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
